Danny Rose’s potential permanent transfer to Newcastle United in the summer may have taken a hit as reports suggest that the Magpies could find it difficult to pay the Spurs man’s wages.

Rose left Spurs to join Newcastle on loan in January after reports of a fall out between the defender and Jose Mourinho (Daily Mail).

The England international has since has admitted that he agreed to the move as he didn’t feel he could get first-team opportunities under the Spurs boss in North London (BBC Radio 5 Live).

Newcastle boss, Steve Bruce, has since admitted that he would like to sign the 29-year-old on a permanent basis in the summer (Chronicle).

However, the Chronicle now reports that the deal hinges on wages with question marks raised over whether Newcastle can afford to match what he earns in North London.

Spotrac claim that Rose currently earns £60,000 per week at Tottenham.

It is revealed that there has been no agreement on a price between Daniel Levy and Mike Ashley on Rose and so both clubs will have to start negotiations afresh in the summer.

Daniel Levy will be ruthless and sell Rose to whoever is willing to pay the most, even if the defender insists on going to the North East. It is clear that the 29-year-old needs a fresh start at another club and he still could have a few good years in him if he buckles down and starts concentrating on his football.
